Yay not ranting for once, vg bronze captain main and thought i would share my personal 5v5 captain tier list for this update. Feel free to ask for tips regarding those heroes or any questions on the captain position in general but keep in mind that its my own personal opinion and i am by no means the best captain out there
- Best pick: Lorelai, already a very solid captain pick last patch, the buffs she received as well the new items and the Lyra nerfs promoted her to the top of the captain tier list.
- Top tier picks: Lyra Adagio Grace, Lyra the uncontested best captain pick last patch has received some significant and justified nerfs but the new item capacitor plate maintained her as a top tier pick. Adagio hasn't directly changed and was an alright pick last patch that could apply a lot of early game pressure but that used to fall off hard but once again capacitor plate has promoted him even higher and he actually scales pretty into the late game with 600 burst heals with once he gets that item. Grace got her ult cd reduced quite drastically for some reason... yeah no need to say more
- Solid picks: Ardan and Catherine, very solid captains that offer great versatility and that you can play with basically any comp but who are not quite as impactful as Lorelai and the top tier picks
- Situational picks: Churnwalker and Fortress, picks that work really well in certain drafts but very poorly in others.
I am still undecided on Phinn because i haven’t seen enough of him to make solid assumptions, he was by far the worst captain last patch but we shall see with the new items and the buff he received. As for the other captains, they’re not worth playing in my opinion.
